The Best Big Game Sports Fishing in the World!

The Whistle Stop is presenting its 10th Anniversary Billfish Classic at Tropic Star Lodge in Pinas Bay, Panama. To celebrate our 10th Anniversary, we are inviting our past Anglers to reminisce with old friends, share fish stories and celebrate an exciting event. In 2016, our Anglers reeled in 244 Sailfish and 9 Marlin in four days - 2017 promises to be as good! Share an unbelievable adventure with your son or daughter. . . And the best part of this adventure is that children, 16 and under enjoy all the fishing, food, and fun FREE. Now is the time to reserve your favorite boat and Captain and guarantee your Tournament entry!


For those who haven’t had this unbelievable experience yet, Tropic Star is situated in the remote Darien Jungle, 150 miles south of Panama City. It is hailed by the Robb Report as the “best saltwater fishing resort in the world”. Mom, Dad and the kids will fish Zane Gray Reef and the surrounding waters for the mightiest fighting game fish in the world, his majesty, the Black Marlin. You will also have Blue and Stripped Marlin, Sailfish, giant Yellowfin Tuna, Dolphin and Roosterfish fighting for your baits. And, believe it or not, your team will probably have to reel in two or three fish at the same time because billfish are so plentiful. For those who like variety, don’t forget about the giant Cubera Snapper, Grouper and Amberjack.
